1 lb salmon filet (skin removed)
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (see note)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp mustard
olive oil for greasing the pan or grill
1 large avocado, chopped
1/3 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, juiced
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
- Chop the salmon filet into small pieces (about 1/4 inch) and transfer it into a medium mixing bowl.
- Gently stir in the rest of the ingredients. Let the mixture rest for 5-10 minutes.
- Heat a little oil in a large non-stick grill pan over medium heat. Divide the salmon mixture into 6 and form neat patties (I used a 1/2 cup as a measure). Fry/grill the patties until browned on both sides and just cooked through; about 4 minutes on each side.
- Combine all the salsa ingredients together and mix well.
I prefer to use use fresh breadcrumbs, although you may use Panko instead. To make a cup of fresh breadcrumbs, just place 4 slices of slightly stale (at least one-day old) bread in a food processor and process until breadcrumbs form. Italian or regular white bread will work the best for this recipe.
